  • Hatha Flow – Hatha flow yoga can improve awareness of your body in space, balance, stabilization, flexibility, and core strength with a well-rounded practice. Explore the benefits of deep, conscious lengthening of the connective tissue and muscles combined with restorative poses to help relieve tension and aid the body in its healing and recovery processes. Specific breath practices (pranayama) and continued awareness and exploration of this ‘prana’ will lead to a deeper awareness within each pose and overall balancing of the body’s energy. Other facets beyond the physical (mental clarity, focus, imagery, and meditation) are integrated into the practice. This class is a great complement to an athletic training program, as a cross training tool, or to help the body prevent injury or promote healing from chronic injury. Suitable for all ages and levels.

With an emphasis on mindfulness, students will also develop a keener inward focus and strive toward a more integrated self. Although this flow class is vigorous in nature, attention to alignment, breathing, and quieting of the mind ensures an intelligent and healing practice. Students should be prepared to move and sweat, but are encouraged to work within themselves and honor their limits.
